Char-Em ISD Career Tech team recognized at state level for construction trades continuum

Students work on building a shed during the 2021 Construction Technology Academy held at Petoskey High School. Char-Em ISD is planning on offering the camp again in summer 2022.

CHARLEVOIX — Char-Em Intermediate School District’s Career and Technical Education Department has been recognized with a state award for its efforts to develop an extensive construction trades continuum that brings students from the classroom to the job site equipped with knowledge, skills and even the tools of the trade.

The “Construction Trades Continuum Initiative” received a 2022 Career and Technical Education College and Career Readiness Excellence in Practice Award from the Michigan Office of Career and Technical Education, announced recently by state Career and Technical Education director Brian Pyles.

“You should be very proud of this significant achievement,” said Pyles. “I commend you for your valuable contribution and your vision, expertise and teamwork in creating and sustaining such an exemplary practice in career education.”

Char-Em’s career tech staff have developed a continuum of opportunities for students to be exposed to various careers, such as the construction trades, at a young age, through camps, classes, activities and site visits.
